T-Mobile Drops Price of T-Mobile G1 to $129.99, Amazon Still a Better Deal

T-Mobile just dropped the price of the T-Mobile G1, a device that's still near and dear to our hearts, to $129.99. If you've been following the riveting tale of price drops on the G1, it launched at $179.99 then lowered to $149.99 and is now at $129.99. T-Mobile is probably trying to move as many G1s as they can (with the CLIQ coming out) and though we appreciate the price drop, seriously, still $129.99?

For comparisons sake, Rogers offers both the T-Mobile G1 (Dream) and myTouch 3G (Magic) for $79.99. Even in the US, Amazon sells the T-Mobile G1 for $97.77. There's no reason T-Mobile should keep a premium on the T-Mobile G1 nearly a year after launch. We say if you still want the T-Mobile G1, buy it through Amazon and if you can wait, wait for the CLIQ.

What do you guys think?
